A Story With A Story- You Can Help the Dreams and Wishes Come True For Seriously Ill Children This Christmas

November 22, 2016

Working with Howells Solicitors we have been lending our support to promote a children’s Christmas book written by local author Wendy Hobbs to raise funds for Dreams & Wishes, a charity that is dedicated to helping seriously ill children and their families by making their own dreams and wishes come true.

Claudia’s Special Wish’ tells the story of a young girl who makes her own special wish that takes her on an adventure travelling from a frozen forest in a magical sleigh accompanied by an elf.

The story will captivate the imagination of those not quite old enough to read it for themselves and make those who can want to read on to find out what happens.


Launched last week by Alun Cairns MP, Secretary of State for Wales, ‘Claudia’s Special Wish’ is available in both paper and electronic versions to buy via Wendy’s website and on Amazon where it is already receiving fabulous reviews.

Please help make Christmas extra special for the Dreams and Wishes children and their families this year and go online to buy a copy, all profits are being donated to this wonderful charity.

There are a growing number of local and national companies including M&S, Waitrose and the Monmouthshire Building Society that are also getting involved and lending their support to fundraise. Some are hosting book signing events with Wendy, and others are placing orders for the book which they are then reselling or gifting to their own staff and customers.  Please contact Wendy via the links below if you or your company/organisation would like to find out how you can help.

Wendy is thrilled that her book has already been so well received. She said,

“It was an honour to be asked to help a charity that I know so well and was already a volunteer. Writing ‘Claudia’s Special Wish’ was a delight and a unique experience knowing that what I was going to produce will directly help put a big smile on the faces of the special children and their families this Christmas. I would like to personally thank Martine Cuccinello, the illustrator of the book who has helped accompany the story with a series of beautiful illustrations that perfectly capture the story. Please show your support for this wonderful charity and buy a copy, all profits generated will be donated to Dreams & Wishes.”
